Sorry to keep bugging you about this, but I found a hiccup on one of my pages that may indicate a problem. I have a page that has seven audio files, but only six of them appear in the Related Music list.

The audio file titled 'The Pearling Matter - Episode 1 (June 18, 1956)' does not appear in the list, even though the file name and metadata are almost identical to episodes 2, 3, 4, and 5, which do appear. Episodes 2 to 5 each show one link under 'Compilations'; episode 1 also has its namesake on the page that appears in the search results.

Here's the page with the 'missing link':

About the placement of the Related Music list on the pages, I think it may be better to put it after the reviews. On some OTR pages there is a very large number of audio files, resulting in an extremely long Related Music list.

Have a look at the OTRR's Gunsmoke page, and you'll see what I mean. Not only does the list drive the reviews several yards down the page, it actually appears in the middle of the uploader's article; the section of that article titled 'Notes' appears after the Related Music list. Perhaps it might be best if the Related Music could be incorporated into the 'Similar Items' section that appears at the bottom of each page.

Here's the Gunsmoke page in question:

Thanks.
